One of my goals as a photographer is to always improve. Regardless of how well others may think my work is I am always trying to learn and grow as a creative.
There are several things you can do to fine tune and/or continue to grow. You can take a workshop, read a blog, or watch videos of how others do it. However, for me, nothing replaces actually getting out the gear and shooting something. Anything. I love reading blogs and YouTube videos as much as the next but I (like many) learn best by doing. I’ve found that for me personally one of the best ways to spin up the creative juice is to shoot outside my norm. These exercises more often than not give me a different perspective on composition, light, or camera control that I either did not pay attention to previously or never needed to use shooting fashion and beauty.
